B&W Smokey Rose

The image above is the B&W practice image from one of my prior photos I experimented with while getting ready for one of the most difficult pushes I have encountered since joining the Get Pushed! family back in Round 6, courtesy of Rich Kyllo (


His push was to produce a high contrast b/w image that shows an interesting notan structure. ( and ( y-step-painting-tutorial/). This was challenge for me, developing (no pun intended!) the mindset to think of my setup in this new way PRIOR to pressing that shutter release.


I decided that there might be some images in my photostream that I just lucked out in having contrasting composition that fit the profile of having a good Notan structure. This is one of them (see the Notan structure below). The other "discovered" Notan structure images and links to their normal images can be found at:







The Notan structure for this image can be found in the comments.


As always, thanks for all your views, comments and faves...
